Test for Alpha Layer - Lens Flares in Imagine 3D v. 2.19
Make your own, perfect lens flares in Imagine and animate.

To the YouTube Video:

And here the scene again with much more particles:

---------------------------------------------------

I have found a very simple way how to let Imagine interact with very professional light and lens flares. Because the module lensflr2.ifx is already very stale and has no nice effects.

With my variant you can achieve the most beautiful lighting effects via simple multilayer rendering, which are otherwise only used by 3DS Max or Blender. In addition, my variant is completely simple and takes no time to calculate.

For the original-basic scene, I simply use a self-made filterbrush as a backflare ( Layer 1 )... which is only visible if a body hides the fake light.

This first rendered scene is then imported as a multilayer in a second scene and recalculated with the fake flare in Layer 2 quasi in real time.

I use exactly the same camera (path) position in the animation in Scene 2 and also position the second LensFlare exactly where the Layer 1 flare was positioned. So the Layer 2 Flare outshines the objects as in real ... and the scene looks very real.

Above all, you are no longer dependent on these pensive effects of the Imagine globals lensflr2.ifx module .... and you can design your scenes much more creatively. And you always have full control over your effect, which you can still readjust perfectly.

And I have to say ... the effect looks as if the scene was calculated with a real light source and a flare module.

So that you understand better how it is done, I have uploaded my scene here in the download area. Once you understand how easy this method works, you'll never again use the boring Imagine Lensflare module. Take a look at the multi-pass scene in the Action-Editor! Then you also understand how everything works.

Hello Perry my friend,
that may be because I wanted to improve the video again within Youtube. I have now put it on "public for all". Now it should go with the new link. ;)

The quality is not very good, as I have only used a very small resolution in the test rendering of 640x360. Later, when I finish all the scenes, of course I render in HD;))

Looking good Karsten! Brings back memories of the 90s for me - not sure that's a good thing or a bad thing lol!

Hello Perry,

yes you, the 90s ..that was another crazy time. Especially for us Germans there was really something going on: D I like to remember this time

But as far as the computer animation scene is concerned ... techniques from the 90s are getting hip again. And especially the Pet Shop Boys 3D-Video was for years the big hit at all. Even today, this video is still a hit ... quasi the old school :)) I do not want to invent this video a second time, but just want to know what techniques have worked there. And then, after my test, I let the knowledge flow into my own music video, which is an open-air disco here in Dresden. And the owner, both the audience are fully into the 90s

By the way, I've just added a bit more to the video and upload it to YouTube. Not much new has been added, as I am currently working on a 3D model for a Mini-Cooper, which will then be used for the actual, new video. The Mini Cooper is almost the distinguishing mark of this disco.

Here is the link to the new video:

Next I'll deal with Particle-Path Animations in Imagine. I'm curious how Imagine behaves, because the famous axis problem with the Z and Y axis exists. Particles in Imagine are always located on the Z Ache .. but the path only allows objects on the Y axis to deform and move the objects. Keep your fingers crossed for me to get it done creatively.

And if I can not do it, then you have to
